Sporting & Dining Club event raises £2814 for charg

The Sporting & Dining Club’s “Question of Sport” event in March, sponsored by PwC, raised a total of £2814.00 for two charities - £1407.00 each for Isle of Man Sport Aid and The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer.


Twenty two teams of 10, named after the teams participating in the Euro 2012 Championships, met at the Palace Hotel & Casino on 08 March to duel for the Sporting & Dining Club’s first black tie “Question of Sport” event, comprised of corporate entertainment and a little friendly competition.


Using the Club’s wireless keypad technology, teams participated in the quiz shown on large screens throughout the evening, featuring a wide range of question styles enjoyed by everyone, not just sport experts.  The guests were entertained by Kevin Connolly, comedy impressionist and star of BBC2’s “Dead Ringers”, who added a splash of quality and humour with his incredible repertoire of well-known sporting voices. The hotly contested event was won by Britannia International, with Cedar Developments collecting the Wooden Spoon. The re-match is scheduled to take place on 07 March 2013.
